Second generation 6-channel audio interface gets a new design, refined sound, and more      07/05/19


Native Instruments has unveiled the second generation KOMPLETE AUDIO 6. They say that following the release of KOMPLETE AUDIO 1 and 2 earlier this year, the AUDIO 6 rounds off their new generation of audio interfaces.

A spokesperson told us, “KOMPLETE AUDIO 6 comes with pristine, pro-grade sound and a flexible set of connections for studio or stage and is perfect for small bands, duos, or solo producers.”

Here’s the details in NI’s own words…

The new KOMPLETE AUDIO 6 follows the sleek, all-black design of its smaller siblings, this time featuring a glass and aluminum housing – refreshing its look and feel while adding extra durability. An improved layout places essential controls, connections, and visual feedback – including new LED VU-meters – exactly where they’re needed, for intuitive use.

Featuring a marked upgrade in sound quality over its predecessor, AUDIO 6 comes with high-definition recording at up to 192 kHz / 24-bit, ultra-low latency, and all-new preamps with improved gain range and higher dynamic range for lower noise floors when recording.

Six inputs and six outputs let musicians and producers bring their whole setup together: 4 analog in/out (with DC coupled ¼” TRS outputs for controlling modular analog synths), 2 digital in/out (SPDIF), and MIDI in/out. They can connect mics, guitars, and other instruments, control external gear via MIDI or CV, create send and return loops with effects, and more, with the convenience of USB bus-power – perfect for modern producer or performer setups.

KOMPLETE AUDIO 6 now comes with two high-power headphone outputs, making it easy for musicians, singers, and producers to create together. With latency-free direct monitoring, playback can be blended with monitored audio to the desired level using a dedicated knob, to hear exactly what’s being recorded, in real-time. Headphone output power has also been doubled from the previous generation – great for stage use or high-impedance headphones.

Like KOMPLETE AUDIO 1 and 2, AUDIO 6 comes with all the software needed to record and build tracks, plus synths, effects, and more. AUDIO 6 additionally comes with Native’s acclaimed MOD PACK – a set of three innovative modulation effects, as well as TRAKTOR LE 3 – a lightweight edition of the flagship DJ software, TRAKTOR PRO 3.
